Opus 40

Unfinished, but beautiful and unique, Opus 40 was created by former college professor and sculptor Harvey Fite in 1939 and ended abruptly in 1970 at Fite's death.  Eventually the structure was opened to the public and is even on the National Register of Historic Places. Now a popular tourist attraction Opus 40 also serves as a popular back drop as a venue for weddings and concerts.

If you're in the area stop by, but be warned there is a $10 admission fee which at first seems decent as it does include a documentary viewing and admission into the museum, as well as, the grounds. However after going through everything in just about an hour (the museum grounds aren't as large as you'd think), it's a bit of a steep price.
